Barcarole in der Nacht is the tenth German single recorded by U. S. entertainer Connie Francis. The B-side was Colombino.

Both songs had been written especially in German for Francis since it had become clear after her previous nine German singles that compositions of German origin were favored by the German audiences to cover versions of Francis' U. S. hits.

"Barcarole in der Nacht" peaked at # 1 of the German charts[1] and remains a fan favorite to this day.

Francis overdubbed Italian vocals to the orchestral playback of "Colombino" on May 7, 1962; this recording, however, remains unreleased to this day.[2]
